Arlington Trip- Pictures at the Park

Over the weekend of Sept. 21-24th we traveled to Arlington to spend time with Robin’s family.  Emma had a 3 day weekend so we thought we better take advantage of it… this will probably be the last time (for several months) that all of his sibblings and their kids can get together because I am due in December and Fallon is due a week before me.  The holidays are going to be a little bit different this year!

We had a great time just hanging out and letting our kids play together.  It is always a crazy time when 5 kids 5 and under get together under one roof.  And to think.. by December there will be 7 kids 6 and under.  :)

I didn’t take many pictures on our trip the first few days we were there- I was pretty tired and just enjoyed resting!  However, Robin and I both snapped some pictures of the kids on our last day there at the park.

Lylah and Emma on the slide- it’s so fun to watch these girls together.  Lylah is a “girly girl.  Can you tell?  She’s wearing a princess dress and pearls at the park!  Emma is wearing a sequined tutu so they get along fantastically!

There were quite a few “outtakes” from this little photo session.  We just had to get a picture of all 5 cousins together.

Tommy (Crystal’s husband) is such a good uncle and brother-in-law.  One of the pregnant ladies suggested that he “Make himself a Dear and go to Sonic for drinks for all of us!”  And he did!  The two pregnant Moms were so excited!  Then when he got back he dove right into playing with the kids.  Here he is helping Lylah on the monkey bars:

Craig with Lylah and Taryn… Lylah is going to be a great big sister to a little brother very soon!

These two boys have a love-hate relationship already.  I think boy cousins are supposed to do that.  They fight like brothers and play like brothers.  I’m thankful for that they have each other and always will!
